1966 GTO drag racing 2011 Pontiac Nationals in Norwalk, OH Mike Green from 1AAuto.com
When he is not filming How To Videos you might find Mike Green behind the
wheel of his '66 GTO drag car. He does most of the work on the car himself
with the help of friends and family. These passes were filmed at the 2011
Pontiac Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk Ohio. The air was
hot and humid when this was filmed so times were off. As of August 2011
best pass is 10.531 @ 126.03 mph.
1965 GTO with open headers 455 and a stick doing a Smokey Burnout.
(Turn it up!!) My 65 GTO in a warm up burnout at Big Al's '05 4th of July
party in New Milford CT. Last one he had at his house. There was a car
show, a burnout contest, a car smashing corral (usually a Jap car), good
food, good people, beer and music. Will miss this party!!!
1965 Pontiac GTO
This 1965 Pontiac GTO has just been through an extensive restoration and is
finally ready! This car was built in Fremont California and has remained a
California car all of it's life. The numbers matching 389ci has been
completely rebuilt. It has new pistons, rings, bearings, camshaft, valves
and valve springs. It's bored .30 over and the crank turned at .010ths. It
still sports the stock 10:75:1 compression ratio and runs perfectly. The
transmission is a stock Muncie M20 wide ratio 4-speed with the original
shifter. Shifts like new. This is a well above-average restoration as the
pictures will show in arguably the best color possible. With new interior,
plenty of newly re-chromed trim, polished stainless steel and all new glass
(except wind-wings), this GTO is a fabulous investment opportunity for the
collector. The paint and body are incredible, beautiful panel alignment,
just a stunning piece of Pontiac history done up right! The car is PHS
documented and it will be included.

PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
